With more than 400 incredible supercars already booked to attend, the Beaulieu Supercar Weekend on August 5th and 6thwill be a celebration of high-octane motoring and an unmissable treat for any petrol-head this summer.

The British camp will showcase Bentley, Jaguar and Aston Martin facing down Italy’s Lamborghini, Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, Japan’s high-powered Nissan and Lexus, Germany’s Mercedes AMG and America’s Ford Mustang.
You will be spoilt for choice with the thrilling displays in the Beaulieu attraction grounds. A special line-up will mark 25 years of the Jaguar XJ220, a legendary supercar that raised the performance bar for its generation. The weekend will also pay homage to the Ford GT with a display that gathers together all three incarnations of this motoring icon, including the original GT40 of the 1960s, the re-born GT of 2005 and the latest generation of the model.
Step off the beaten track to discover the Super-SUV Secret Garden in the secluded and magical Old Museum Gardens, where the industry’s leading performance luxury off-roaders will be on show. Combining brutal power and astounding luxury, these high-spec all-terrain super-SUVs are sure to impress.
Then head to the events fields, as scores of supercar owners park up their stylish and powerful machines for all to see and admire.
